Now the owlets are 6 weeks old. Ronnie moved them into a 20-foot square flight cage decorated with branches and a nest box for shelter. She installed a plastic wading pool and stocked it with leaves, twigs and live brown mice. Sure enough, the rustling and motion in the pool attracted the owlets and soon they were catching their own meals. Owls are insatiably curious: in the wild they explore every nook and cranny, and investigate every sound or movement in their neighborhood. If you’d like to support the work Ronnie does, she’s a licensed, independent wildlife rescuer, and help her with her volunteer efforts to save these wonderful lives, you can buy her book, go to, or send donations to P. O. Box 1336, Mendocino, CA, 95460. She and the critters thank you!
